Uruguay starts the development of an oral vaccine prototype against COVID-19, what is it? Local scientists are looking for the modification of the Salmonella bacteria to provide mucosal protection. In the laboratories of the Hygiene Institute of Uruguay, local scientists started the development of a prototype of an oral vaccine against COVID-19. According to Alejandro Chabalgoity, a professor at Udelar's Department of Biotechnological Development, "if we want to eradicate the new coronavirus, we will almost certainly have to have other types of vaccines, such as mucosal or oral vaccines"....

....The research has just begun, but it is known in advance that, in case it is successful, scientists will have to work with foreign organizations or companies. The fact is that Uruguay does not have a vaccine manufacturing plant necessary for clinical trials. The country does not have such a plant, neither from local private companies nor from the State. The construction of such a plant is part of the Vaccine Institute project for which the Parliament has just approved an initial allocation of money, but it would take years to be operational; perhaps longer than the time needed to test the oral vaccine against COVID-19 made in Uruguay.

Combining Sputnik V and Moderna triples the level of antibodies in the over-60s. According to a study developed in Santa Fe,
the research was carried out with 303 volunteers who completed their immunization scheme with a first dose of Sputnik V and a second dose of Moderna. "The response was greater than in homologous schemes, even tripling the value of the antibodies", explained a specialist. In those under 60, "there were no significant changes"....The work was carried out between August and October 2021 by professionals from the Ministry of Health of Santa Fe, the Center for Technology in Public Health (CTSP) of the Faculty of Biochemical and Pharmaceutical Sciences of the National University of Rosario (UNR) and the Provincial Hospital del Centenario....

U.S. will accept travelers vaccinated with combination formulations, but only if all are approved by WHO. The U.S. gov't on Monday adopted new rules for international travelers authorizing the entry of people immunized with Moderna, Pfizer, AstraZeneca, Covaxin, Covishield, Sinopharm or Sinovac with the requirement for a full vaccination for non-resident visitors and a PCR test. Persons who received a first vaccine of Sputnik V and a second of another approved formulation will still not meet the requirements.

Also indicated that booster doses are not included in the requirements, while the efficacy and duration of immunity provided by the vaccines is still being studied. In addition, ruled out for the moment authorizing the entry of people with "natural immunity" after infection and who are not vaccinated....The Department of Homeland Security has warned that it expects "the increased volume of travelers to result in longer wait times at customs" and recommends having documents on hand and showing "patience," it said in a statement released last week.

Coronavirus: A committee of experts from the National Ministry of Health agreed to reinforce immunization against the coronavirus with the application of a third booster dose. The plan will start with adults over 70 years of age and healthcare personnel who have completed the vaccination schedule more than 180 days ago. "The administration of a dose of vaccine, in these cases, is due to the fact that the immune response is likely to diminish over time," it was officially announced.

Stages of the vaccination plan that will be taken into account to grant booster doses:
- Health personnel (staggered according to activity risk).
- Adults over 70 years of age and persons residing in nursing homes or homes.
- Older adults from 60 to 69 years of age.
- Strategic personnel.
- People between 18 and 59 years old with risk conditions.

The Gov't of the City of BA stated that today was the starting point to begin inoculation with booster doses. Some 13,000 people will receive their respective vaccination during this day, it was officially stated. On the other hand, the Province of BA indicated that with respect to these booster doses, the 514,000 health workers who work in that district will begin to be vaccinated at the end of December with the aim of "generating more defenses with a view to the coming winter"....
